Okay, sneezing lampreys rank right up there with squealing crawfish.
I have had hagfish and it was very good. Lampreys?? They always remind me of oceanic leaches.

Aaaaactually, hagfish are apparently a delicacy in Korea. They're really quite cool, unlike lampreys which are just icky. They're oceanic vacuum cleaners, eating dead things off the sea floor. Did you know that they can sneeze? And they tie themselves in knots?
